Word's Most Perilous School Run Now Slightly Less Scary

Children in the hamlet of Atuler in the Chinese province of Sichuan have to climb an 800m cliff to get to and from school each day. When their plight became public authorities installed a steel ladder. While the climb remains difficult, locals said the ladder has made a significant difference, and the climb now takes an hour less than it used to.
